An affordable collection of gear to get your home recording career off the ground.
This TASCAM TrackPack SE USB Bundle comes with the TASCAM US-122mkII USB 2.0 computer interface, Cubase LE5 music production software, TASCAM TM-78 large condenser microphone with stand, and TASCAM HP-VT1 closed-ear headphones. The package contains the key recording equipment you need to turn your Mac or PC into a total production system for music, podcasting, or production.
The US-122mkII recording interface is your computer's gateway into the audio world. More than just a soundcard, it has a pair of pro-quality microphone preamps for connecting any type of microphone. High-quality condenser microphones — like the included TASCAM TM-78 — need power to operate, which is achieved with the phantom power switch. Another switch turns on the line input, for recording powered devices like keyboards, drum machines, and guitar amp modelers. You can even plug your guitar or bass directly into the TASCAM US-122mkII. With two inputs, you can record two microphones or sources at once.
The TASCAM US-122 mkII audio interface connects to Mac or Windows computers using USB 2.0, and the unit is powered over the USB cable. Zero-latency monitoring is available for recording without the delay going to a computer and back. MIDI input and output jacks allow connection of synths and drum machines. Connect the US-122mkII to monitors through the line output or use the included TASCAM HP-VT1 closed-ear headphones with the front-mounted stereo 1/4" jack. The US-122mkII makes a perfect portable recording interface with metal components and solid construction built for the road.
This gear pack also comes with Cubase LE5 software, a powerful music workstation combining audio and MIDI recording, editing and mixing in a single, integrated software package. This music production software gives you plenty of tracks - up to 48 - to put together a song arrangement, one track at a time. It's simple to use, and you can edit your tracks to fix timing and mistakes to put together a perfect take. Cubase LE5 has a professional-quality mixer built in with plug-in effects like reverbs, compressors, distortion, auto-pan, and more. You can add more VST plug-ins later and there are more free and commercial VST plug-ins than any other format. Cubase LE5 supplies everything you need to record, edit and produce your music, turning it into a polished, professional CD.
